SI Swimsuit Deja-Vu?

2008 Swimsuit Cover
I have nothing but love for my former colleagues at SI, but when I saw the cover of this year’s swimsuit issue last week, I said” “Huh? Haven’t I seen this before?”
Indeed, this year’s addition – featuring veteran SI model Marissa Miller in the U.S. Virgin Islands – is strangely reminiscent of the 2000 cover (below) with Daniela Pestova, which was shot in Malaysia.
If this was an homage, a tribute to that 2000 cover, it was not clear.

    When they unveiled it on Letterman, first thing that ran thru my head was the earlier cover. Was awfully hot in 2000, awfully redundant in 2008. At least it was a model on the cover this year.
